"AT&T needs to spend $5 Billion to catch up

With all the crap that’s gone on (and still going on) between AT&T and Verizon, it’s safe to say that this is the last thing AT&T wanted to come out. According to a study that just came out, AT&T would have to spend approximately $5 billion US to get their network to the same level as Verizon and Sprint.


This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who actually owns an AT&T phone, given the almost constant problems with dropped calls, spotty service, and slow data speeds. The study also admits that AT&T has started to upgrade their infrastructure, particularly in the Bay Area, with positive results. This makes sense give the nature of their agreement with Apple."

I went from stock to .88 and now on .17. The .17 seems to be the best but still not very good. The poor reception and dropped connection issues may be more a function of AT&T servide rather than the radio version!

While the huge hulking dinosaurs of ATT & Verizon clash with great noise...the small but nimble mammal that is T-Mobile (USA) quietly evolves.

I get great 3G coverage here in the west valley....Radio:4.49.25.17 seems to work the best

Yes, you are lucky. I asked about this at two different stores and the rep at the first store blamed the phone and suggested I exchange for iPhone. The rep at the second store told me to call tech support.

Anyone in the Midwest on AT&T? I am using 4.48.25.20 and I get decent reception here in the area. Bars seem to be good, but sometimes callers complain about static.

Any suggestions? I know alot of people in the CA region are using the .17 with great results, but I am curious about the Midwest.

Thanks!

I'm in the Detroit area (95% of my time spent between Plymouth / Livonia / Northville / Dearborn) and the .17 radio made quite a bit of difference. Much stronger signal pretty much everywhere. I used to not get any signal in my kitchen, now I get 1 to 2 H bars. Highly recommended.

I tried it and it seemed fine, at least for me in central Oregon, USA. But actually, it didn't seem much different than .57 or .17 ...not enough for me to notice anyway.
